Gloucester seeks community input on open space, recreation

OSRP will influence plan for parks, recreation spaces & natural resources  

Do you live in Gloucester? Are you interested in helping to shape the future of open space and recreation in your community?  

The City of Gloucester is working with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to update its open space and recreation plan (OSRP) and we need your input!  

The open space and recreation plan will guide Gloucester’s decisions and investments to protect, maintain and improve open space, parks and recreational resources. Completing a plan will make Gloucester eligible for state funds to acquire and improve conservation and recreation land.  

The City and Open Space and Recreation Committee will host a virtual community meeting and open house on Monday, April 26 at 5 p.m. Register at mapc.ma/GloucesterOSRP.  

Attendees will learn about the OSRP planning process, hear an overview presentation on existing park and open space resources in Gloucester and give feedback on their vision for future park and recreation improvements. 

This open house will be the first of several opportunities for residents to get involved in the plan. Can’t make it? Following the meeting, a “Virtual Open House” with a meeting recording and chance to give feedback will be available on the city website. Residents will be able to participate in the Virtual Open House any time between April 26 and May 10 at https://gloucester-ma.gov/271/Open-Space-Recreation-Planning.
